Blobfish.

This is a picture of a Blobfish, many people think it’s creepy and strange but I find it kind of cute 🙂 It has a big nose and giant lips, probably why it looks sad, or because people don’t like it. It also has like snot off it’s lip.

 

Here is a picture of it with out snot.

It also looks clean and a bright pink.  Here are some facts about Blobfish.

1) The blobfish is a deep sea fish of the family Psychrolutidae. Inhabiting the deep waters off the coasts of mainland Australia and Tasmania,it is rarely seen by humans.

2) Blobfish live at depths between 600–1,200 m (2,000–3,900 ft) where the pressure is several dozen times higher than at sea level, which would likely make gas bladders inefficient for maintaining buoyancy. Instead, the flesh of the blobfish is primarily a gelatinous mass with a density slightly less than water; this allows the fish to float above the sea floorwithout expending energy on swimming. Its relative lack of muscle is not a disadvantage as it primarily swallows edible matter that floats in front of it. Blobfish eat invertebrates like crabs and sea pens.

3) Blobfish can be caught by bottom trawling with nets as bycatch. Such trawling in the waters off Australia may threaten the blobfish in what may be its only habitat.The blobfish is currently facing extinction due to deep-sea fishing or bottom trawling.

 

That’s all for now! 🙂
